I am having trouble with the syntax to set the 'Recovery_Option' on a database. It is
currently set at 'simple' and I need to
change it to 'full'.

I am looking at the help file, but I am very
poor at understanding the correct syntax from
it. Here is what I have. (It doesn't work.)

alter database SqlTest  SET 'recovery_option' = recovery full

What should it be?

Thanks

Your Alter statement is incorrect.  Try:

ALTER DATABASE SqlTest SET RECOVERY FULL
